There's no place like home! Rosewood Retirement Community is a unique, safe and secure residential setting, designed to preserve the dignity and independence of seniors. It truly is supportive housing at its best.
Rosewood is made up of twelve self-contained support homes, specifically designed for seniors who need assistance in their day to day activities. Rosewood provides professional management and service, delivered by warm, caring employees who have a commitment to personalized service. Enclosed walkways join our homes to create a charming village square, and each home entry area resembles a house, complete with cobblestone porch, window and siding.
An outdoor courtyard is central to the houses and can be enjoyed by all the residents. Common areas have a country oak kitchen, living room, TV lounge, laundry facilities and a screened-in porch, making Rosewood Retirement Community feel like the kind of home we know and love.

"Moving My Mother"

At the end of December, we finally received the phone call we had been anticipating for 18 months...our Mother had finally been offered at bed in Long Term Care. We were delighted when the room was in the Roseview (Thunder Bay|) as that had been her first choice. The only problem was my husband and I were leaving for a 6 week trip the day before her move. The Roseview and their staff were so accommodating in helping us to facilitate this move. My husband is her Power of Attorney and they assured us the paperwork could be completed when we returned as long as we completed the basic forms for her admission. We live in Winnipeg, and my Mother in Thunder Bay, so this move was problematic at the best of times, but the Roseview staff went out of their way to make the transition a smooth one. Since then they have facilitated conference calls to discuss her care plan with family, which was thorough and completed in a timely manner, and shared information with all concerned. Since the move the staff have been available to listen to concerns in regard to her care and adjustment to the home. They have taken the time to learn about her likes and dislikes and how they can engage her in their activities. I am very satisfied that my Mother is now in a facility that meets her needs both physically and mentally.

I can't say enough about Rosewood. I looked at a few places in the spring last year, and this was the place I felt had the most privacy, and yet the residents are well look after. They have their own room in a house of 12 people. It is well laid out, and the residents have acess to many rooms, just has they would have in their own home.
The staff are great, they are so helpful and very patient with the residents. Meal times are pleasant, as they all sit at the table and enjoy thier food as well as the company of their new family they have made at the Rosewood. Meds are given out at the same time every day, and there are many activities through out the day to keep residents stimulated. If you are looking for a home for your loved one, and want them to feel like they are at home, then Rosewood is the place you want.
Thank you Rosewood for being there.

When we were in the need to find a place for my mother-in-law, I search many . I took her with me to see some of them and Rosewood was one . She does suffer from slight dementia , but for most part , she knows what is going on, she kept telling me that the Rosewood was the nicest, and I had to agree. I liked the House idea, and there only being 12 suits per house, but she has the access to go into the connecting house to give her even more area to walk , for she enjoys walking. She enjoys going out with her husband for car rides each day, but she insists on getting back to her place for all her meals. She really enjoys the atmosphere and her meals that are served to her three times a day, plus little tea/coffee and snacks in between. She often says she has a great life now , with so many friends,and she enjoys the activities throughout the day, her only complaint is that there are no prizes for winning Bingo and then she laughs . She can't say enough about the staff, they are the best in her eyes, and I have to agree, and say they have gone beyond there call of duties to help her. Other than her dementia, we feel her health has improved since she has been there, for she is getting proper meals and her meds on time. I highly recommend the Rosewood to anyone looking for that special home away from home.Thank you Rosewood for being there.

The Rosewood was a really wonderful home for my Mother. All the time that she was there, I felt great comfort in the fact that she was safe and living in a warm and home like environment. She spoke often of Rocky and how much she enjoyed her recreational outings with him.

She did often complain about the food however. She felt that it was often cold, which was a real source of irritation for her. Her room was lovely and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful.
